  • How To Install NoMachine's NX Server and NX Client
    08/30/2012 10:50AM

    Following is a quick howto for installing the NoMachine free version of NXServer:

    . Make sure that you have a DNS entry for the hostname of your NX Server machine or an entry in the server's /etc/hosts file that points to it's IP.

    . rpm -i nxclient-3.5.0-7.x86_64.rpm
    . rpm -i nxnode-3.5.0-7.x86_64.rpm
    . rpm -i nxserver-3.5.0-9.x86_64.rpm

    . copy stock config file to server.cfg:
            . # cd /usr/NX/etc
            . # cp server.cfg server.cfg_oem
            . # cp server-redhat.cfg.sample server.cfg

    . edit config files:
            . /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg: ensure that the following values are set:
                    . EnablePasswordDB = "0"
                    . EnableStatistics = "0"
                    . EnableNodeMonitoring = "0"
                    . EnableUserProfile = "0"

            . /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg
                    . EnableSensor = "0"

    . generate SSH keys:
            . /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --keygen
            . use the key: /usr/NX/share/keys/default.id_dsa.key in the NX Client config when making a connection to your server

  • Solution for 'Server configuration error. Cannot log in. Please contact your system administrator' for NXServer/NXClient Session
    08/30/2012 10:38AM

    I am setting up a vm running CentOS 6.2 and want to be able to connect to it via NXClient.

    After doing the basic install and getting the key from the server I got the following error when trying to login on the client side:

    Server configuration error. Cannot log in.  Please contact your system administrator

    Looking at /var/log/messages on the server revealed the following (hostName is the name of the host for the machine, changed from the actual nameof the box):

    Aug 30 10:21:30 hostName NXNODE-3.5.0-9[12117]: ERROR: NX> 596 ERROR: NXNODE Ver. 3.5.0-9  (Error id eAE8C74) [eAE8C74] Logger::log nxnode 2963
    Aug 30 10:21:30 hostName NXNODE-3.5.0-9[12117]: ERROR: NX> 596 ERROR: create session: run commands [eAE8C74] Logger::log nxnode 2963
    Aug 30 10:21:30 hostName NXNODE-3.5.0-9[12117]: ERROR: NX> 596 ERROR: execution of last command failed [eAE8C74] Logger::log nxnode 2963
    Aug 30 10:21:30 hostName NXNODE-3.5.0-9[12117]: ERROR: NX> 596 last command: /usr/bin/xauth -v -f /home/rchapin/.nx/C-hostName-1004-3C32B952A4DB53BE56F707B06E917F71/authority source /home/rchapin/.nx/C-hostName-1004-3C32B952A4DB53BE56F707B06E917F71/scripts/authority [eAE8C74] Logger::log nxnode 2963
    Aug 30 10:21:30 hostName NXNODE-3.5.0-9[12117]: ERROR: NX> 596 exit value: 1 [eAE8C74] Logger::log nxnode 2963

    I realized after seeing this that I did not have a DNS entry for the hostName machine and xauth failed because it could not resolve it.

    In this case, I added a entry in /etc/hosts for the host name and was then able to fire up the NXClient session.
